Komfort Foundation: Educating the under-privileged Kodava children
PRESS RELEASE: Every child in this world should have access to basic education. In theory, this might be a governmental responsibility, but in practice, we all know that relying on the government for every little bit of social progress is absurd. There is such a thing as citizens ' Social Responsibility'.
'Komfort Foundation' is one such registered NGO that believes in individual social responsibility, A non-profit NGO that provides education for poor school children, it began with a reflection that "A solid education is the way to a better quality of life." With this goal in mind, Komfort Foundation came up with two different programs — Prevention of School Drop-Outs (POSD) programme and a full-time Educational Sponsorship Programme (ESP), conceived to help children coming from under-privileged, economically backward families.
Kodagu district has been taken up as a ‘Pilot Project’. Subsequently, the plan is to extend the programme to other regions on a phase-by-phase basis.
KOMFORT FOUNDATION has 12A income tax exemption from Central Government and is now seeking the 80G tax exemption.
Since Komfort Foundation began its charity trust on Jan.6, 2011, under Prevention of School Drop-Outs (POSD) programme, has assisted 104 under-privileged Kodava children's school fees at Kodagu and under full-time time Educational Sponsorship Programme (ESP), have assisted three brilliant poor Kodava students from Kodagu by three Kodava philanthropists , two for Engineering and one for graduation.
Komfort Foundation has a future plans of assisting a minimum of 100 such under-privileged meritorious Kodava students from Kodagu by identifying them for the full-time sponsorship under Education Sponsorship Programme (ESP). Identifying such brilliant students are already under way.
